BIRMINGHAM — Hewitt-Trussville’s Noah Igbinoghene set a state record and the national mark in the triple jump Saturday morning at the Alabama High School Athletic Association Indoor Track and Field Championship at CrossPlex.
Igbinoghene jumped 50-03.00, breaking the state record he set last year of 48-01 he set at last year’s championships, the CrossPlex record of 49-03.75 he set last week, and breaking his own personal best of 49-7 he set at the New Balance Indoor last spring.
The Huskies senior, who signed with Auburn on Wednesday to play football and run track, is set to run in the 40 meter dash later Saturday.
Friday, Igbinoghene won the Class 7A long jump with a leap of 24-5, breaking his own state record and matching his U.S. No. 2 jump.
After eight events, Hewitt-Trussville’s boys were in third place.
While Igbinoghene’s championships were not unexpected, Clay-Chalkville picked up an individual championship that was.
Senior Adrienne Lewis, who set an indoor personal best of 36-6.25 at last weekend’s Last Chance Invitational to take fourth place in the triple jump, set a new personal record by jumping 37-08.50 on her final effort to win the girls 6A triple jump championship for the Lady Cougars.
